RENO — Six Carson City Sheriff’s Office Reserve Deputies graduated the academy Friday night in a ceremony at the University of Nevada, Reno.
The ceremony, held in the UNR Joe Crowley Student Union Building, saw seven reserves graduate — six from Carson City and one from the UNRPD.
Reserve deputies are sworn law enforcement officers who are unpaid deputies working with police departments. They are used for a number of jobs such as foot and bike patrol, special event coverage and jail coverage. Each reserve must meet Nevada Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) requirements to become a reserve basic deputy. There are various levels of reserves, ranging from a category one which has all peace officer authority to the reserve basic and can do patrol and other things but must be under constant supervision.
